* ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'': A [[TheGrotesque dwarf]] boy and his athletic older brother [[RescueRomance run into a girl pursued by bandits]]. The older brother fights off the thugs and the younger brother comforts the girl. Boy and girl like each other and get married. This is how Tysha and Tyrion Lannister (with the brother being Jaime) meet... [[StarCrossedLovers And]] [[PrankDate then it doesn't go well]]. [[spoiler: Averted later on when it was revealed by Tywin that it in fact wasn't a date prank, and that Tysha in fact did love Tyrion]]

* Parodied in ''VideoGame/CrushCrush''. You meet the first girl, Cassie, with a textbook CrashIntoHello... that injures her so badly that her next appearance is in a full-body cast. Quite understandably, she's majorly pissed off at you for a while. Many of the game's girls are met in similarly Meet ''Ugly'' encounters that leave them mad at or upset with you until you apologize to them enough times.

* Most of ''Manga/LoveHina'' is filled with this trope... Keitaro and Naru get it most often, particularly in the episode where they both decide, separately, that they need to go on vacation, bump into each other, both break their glasses, and have to spend the day together, doing romantic stuff, only to find out when they've regained their glasses who they are, and spend the rest of their trip escorting an anemic girl back to her home island.

* Played with in ''[[FiftyFirstDates 50 First Dates]]'', where a woman and a guy meet in standard fashion, in a bar. Except she got a brain injury that kept her from converting her daily short-term memory to long term. The rest of the movie is him making her fall in love with him. Every. Single. Day. [[spoiler:They even marry and have kids.]]

** ''The Lady Eve'' - Barbara Stanwyck plays a femme fatale out to snag rich men so she and her father can cheat them at cards; Henry Fonda plays a naive but wealthy heir to a brewery. Wanting to make lots of money off him, she deliberately sticks out her foot and trips him, then berates him for breaking the heel off her shoe. He accompanies her to her cabin, where he puts a new pair of shoes on her feet himself as she aggressively flirts with him.
** ''Mr. Deeds Goes to Town'' - Gary Cooper plays a naive country boy who suddenly becomes a millionaire. Once he moves to the big city, the cynical reporter played by Jean Arthur wants to meet him so she can do a big story on him -- so she pretends to faint outside his mansion, and he gallantly comes to her aid.
** In ''Film/{{Midnight 1939}}'', Claudette Colbert's character is looking for a cab driver that's willing to take her to find a job. She finds Don Ameche, and bluntly tells him her plan: she doesn't have money now, but will double what the meter says and give him a tip if he just gives her a free ride. He agrees, opens the car door, and then hostilely says a big fat no. She then buys a newspaper for cover from the rain, and Ameche's character, out of guilt, gives her a free ride.

Not to be confused with TheCutie, even though either or both of them could very well be just that.
